Lucide branded Balloon Desk/Wall Lamps, sold with a model number of 13217/01/31, and a unknown barcode/EAN of 5 411212 133779.

These Lucide branded Balloon Desk/Wall Lamps are AC-powered Lamps marketed and sold as decorative lighting fixtures for desk or wall use as indoor lighting accents for residential rooms, possibly suitable for children due to their pink color and whimsical design.

No item numbers, best-before date codes, model numbers, manufacturing date codes, batch/lot designations, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Lucide branded Balloon Desk/Wall Lamps include the reported finding that the recalled Lamps are attractive to children but they are not equipped with a transformer or converter to safely step-down the voltage near the fixture. In addition, the integral Lamp Bulb is easily accessible and touching it while it is hot or recently extinguished may cause burns. Finally, the operator can contact live parts and receive an electric shock.

As a direct consequence of this reported defect, the Lucide branded Balloon Desk/Wall Lamps lack sufficient insulative and/or heat protection for people who utilize the product in a reasonable manner expected with its intended use and therefore, do not comply with the requirements of Europe’s Low Voltage Directive as well as the relevant European standards EN 60598.

As a result of these reported defects, a recall of these recalled Lucide branded Balloon Desk/Wall Lamps, and a withdrawal of the products from the European marketplace and recall from end users in the European marketplace has been ordered.
